Global climate change is already affecting the bottom line for companies around the world, and in the years ahead, managing climate risk will emerge as a key management imperative.
Some of the world’s largest financial institutions are actively warning clients to act now on climate risk and to improve their positioning in a global economy that will be fundamentally altered by severe weather events, technological advances, regulatory changes, and shifts in consumer demand.

The report is produced alongside Imperial College, with the talk will drawing upon their interdisciplinary work on environmental and financial issues to deliver a practical examination of the business case for adapting to global climate change.
